My new toy

I just bought a new lens for my camera..........it was a christmas present from Popster & it took me all this time to decide which one to buy.  I was torn between the 85mm & a wide angle 10-24mm(which by the way is on my wish list).
I haven't a lot time to play with it but it is supposed great for portraits & macro.
These were taken out of the window from the sun room
Molly "suffered" through being my model for some portraits
Don't you love the expression?  I swear there's a real person inside that head!
These are close-ups of the potpourri on my table






So far I'm liking it a lot!

No time to really play with it as I now have two more rooms to empty....I was hoping to be able to do the closets by myself but we're having another "freakin" snow storm which was supposed to start around noon today with anywhere from 3 to 16 inches(the computer modules are fighting amongst themselves as to how much....if you can picture that in your head!)  They are having early dismissal for schools which may backfire as it started snowing a 7:30am. 

Maybe those computer modules need some serious counseling!

Maybe I will too if I have to hear Popster say: "I can't believe how many clothes you own!" or "Do you really have this many pairs of shoes?"  over & over again!

Wish me luck!
Love

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BIG BROTHER

Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.

MISTAKE #1

I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.

MISTAKE #2!

About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me something.....how did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in August......to wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.







Needless to say at that poin…

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"
